How to be an ape with "War of the Planet of The Apes" star

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) - You must be an ape, not act like one, to capture the beast’s essence for a motion capture film.

“War for the Planet of the Apes” star Aleks Paunovic accomplished that by attending Ape Camp, a rigorous, demanding course that prepared him for his role as Winter.

At 6 feet 5 inches tall and a physical build rooted in the boxing ring, Paunovic says he’s been “aping” around his whole life. But all that aping didn’t fully prepare him for the task of actually playing one.

He talked all about his journey from boxer to garage band rock star to master of apedom with News 8’s Dan Cohen.

And no, we didn’t let him leave the studio without showing off his newfound talents.
